Personal Bests Set at VMI Winter Relays

LEXINGTON, Va. – The men's and women's indoor track and field teams competed at the Virginia Military Institute Winter Relays this weekend. The team saw numerous personal records across the board.

On Friday, Curtis Dudley got things going as his time of 7.04 in the 60m hurdles not only earned him a spot in the semifinals but also was the top time of any Division III participant. He would shave off .06 seconds in the next round and just missed the cut to the finals. Landry Moffo also earned his way into the second round of the 60m hurdles as his time of 8.64 topped all DIII hurdlers.

Quentin Webert and Coby Cockrell also found success on Friday. Webert tossed the weight 14.03m which placed him in ninth out of 39 competitors while Cockrell registered a distance of 13.38m in the shot put (12th out of 43). Both were the top Division III throws in their respective events.

Saturday saw multiple Marlins achieve personal records. In the 200m dash, Dan Johnson crossed the finish line in 23.42 while Kwonsha Washington finished in 27.55 (both PRs). Tres Massey registered a time of 4:49 in the mile to secure a personal best while Teah Lorenzi's 6:01.3 was her top time. Sticking with distance Louis Wolverton also chimed in a personal best as his 9:33.33 in the 3000m bested his record by over two seconds.

Indoor track and field will return to action on Feb. 24 as the team competes at the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Championships on the campus of Roanoke.
